Notice...Midleton 5 mile road race - Thurs 7th May 2015

The start of May every year is associated with one of the most popular road races on the calendar...the Joe Hourigan Memorial Midleton 5 mile road race. This is organised by Midleton AC, one of the largest athletic clubs in Cork. The date for the race is Thursday, the 7th of May 2015 at 8pm.

Directions and Instructions...see the map below of Midleton.

a) Note that the race HQ this year is at the local Gaelscoil / Community Centre, not at the GAA grounds.

b) Entries on the night will be taken at the Gaelscoil (€10). Entry desks will open at 6:00pm.

From Cork City, the easiest way to get to the Gaelscoil / Community Centre is from the roundabout on the Cork/Youghal road. Don't take the first slip road and drive through the town.

c) Pre-entries...On Wednesday evening (6th May), you can pre-enter at the local Community Centre between 6pm and 7:30pm. This will allow you to collect your race number and avoid the entry queue on Thursday evening.

d) No Headphones!!... Due to insurance reasons, anyone found wearing them will be disqualified. Out of all the local races, you can expect it to be enforced here.

e) Start.....The start line for the race is about 1.2 miles / 1.9 kms from the Gaelscoil. The finish line is about 1.6 kms / 1 mile.

f) Toilets....There are toilet facilities available at Midleton Gym & Fitness Centre which is near the start line.

Course....A full preview of the course with maps, directions, photos can be seen HERE
